head of a special forces team in libya. he told cbs news that his request for beefed up security was rejected in washington. the man who made the call to reject the extra security, undersecretary of state management, patrick kennedy who held the job since 2007. after the attack kennedy privately briefed house and senate staffers told them the attack appeared to be sophisticated involving light and heavy weapons. four days after that briefing, u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice took to five different sunday talk shows to say it was not a planned attack. it was another three days after that, before any senior u.s. official publicly stated that the benghazi incident was indeed a terrorist attack. >> americans deserve the truth on what happened. and so i think what you're going to find is these bits and pieces are going to come out. again i think we're both troubled by some of the things we saw and unfold. >> reporter: the house oversight committee hearing on the benghazi attacks gets underway tomorrow at noon. a lot of people will be watching, martha. martha: there is sort of a

. we get all of the internal back and forth and explanation. i will say this is what is difference. cbs on the ground originally said the story didn't add up cnn got the journal and lambasted by the secretary of state's staffer for putting it forward and said it was news worthy and not personal. they took on every news agency including us on this story and now all guns including the state department pointed in the administration. >> gretchen: because the way the state department answered this question yesterday: do you agree with the white house on the conclusion that the attack was sparked by the video instead of a planned terrorist attack and the state department said you would have to ask others. that was not our conclusion. >> steve: they have got themselves a scandal with a month before the election . and we told you yesterday about a actress that appeared. she played dee in clueless. it turns out, she who once upon a time supported barack obama and she now supports mitt romney. >> brian: she had death slams. >> steve: who wound up contacting paul ryan. and then later there was thi
a snap poll in terms of results from tonight's debate. cbs news did a flash poll of uncommitted voters on who they think won tonight's debate. 19% of those voters said the debate was a tie. 31% say that paul ryan won. 50% say that vice president biden won. we're going to be joined in a moment -- we've talked to a couple of people who are functioning as surrogates for the obama campaign tonight. we're going to be speaking with a supporter of ryan and romney in just a moment, congresswoman marsha blackburn in a moment. while we get her to a microphone, i want to get response from you guys to that poll. that comports my feelings about who won the debate. steve, as a republican, does that feel like a reasonable response? >> undecided voters, i certainly think it's in the realm of possibility. you have to look at where all the flash polls are. the thing to remember, just like last week, those undecided voters, they will break to the winner side over the next 48 hours. that lead will spread. if, in fact, there's a 20-point lead off of the flash polls on average with 20% undecided by the time
i doubt it will be as interesting. >> rose: john dickerson just joined us, my colleague at cbs. i just raised a question of whether this debate in any way until we see the next presidential debate either enhanced or stopped in any way the romney momentum coming out of the first debate and the change it had brought. >> i think what it did is it gave democrats something to be, you know, get their blood going again, there was a lot of chaos and fury and then biden hit every point the president missed from talking about the 47 percent video to talking about detroit, to encapsulating the general argument which is that the romney-ryan ticket, this is of course the argument coming from the obama team that the romney-ryan ticket is just kind of so over the top in their claims that they are laughable, now that sucker for democrats, the question is, independents and swing voters who could very well have seen biden's attempt to turn ryan into dan quayl which i don't think workd, see that and think he is arrogant, think he is a little too full of himself for an a administration that had the d

people said that congressman ryan won, that is 48-44 percent but look at this, a cbs news poll of uncommitted voters showed that biden won by double digits, 50-31 with a sizable number saying it was a tie. snap polls like those represent fewers' gut reaction to the debate which can change over time. it is still not quite clear whether any of this will matter. in the past the v.p. showdowns rarely make a difference when voters ultimately head to the polls. john roberts with the news from richmond, virginia, are governor romney campaigned today. what dough we hear from the campaign today? >> well, not surprisingly we are hearing from both sides they won and based on the polls you just pointed out, they may be right. not surprisingly both sides are attacking each other over things that were said last night. obama campaign taking aide at romney saying they will cut taxes 20 percent across the board and paul ryan would not come up with details. >> we want to work with congress on how to achieve this. this means successful. >> no specifics? >> we saying lower tax rates 20 percent, st
